Hi Mitch,
Check out:
If you really want wood, bending it isn't all that difficult, and if you're just doing 2 2x4's as John suggests for a seismically resistant beam, it should be even easier.  You should see some of the magnificent pieces of solid oak old wooden boat builders used to bend for their craft!
